The Doctor was at dinner with some friends who had been viewing the work, when a servant came in to inform him that in draining off the water the men had found a chalybeate, Have they indeed? cried he with much interest, I am very glad to hear it. Tell them to put it along with the other fish for the present. 1827. May 18.Harry Sandford (of the Treasury), Cannon, Tom Hill, Sir Andrew Barnard, and myself, went up to Twickenham by the steamboat. On the way we talked all sorts of nonsense, and laughed at everything, and everybody. A queer-looking old gentleman served especially to amuse Sandford, who took a delight in quizzing him. What is this bridge were coming to ? asked the old gentleman of the skipper. 4 Kew, Sir, returned the man.

Let us hope he will be spared the additional affliction which you appear to anticipate.1 I should be the most ungrateful of beings if I did not sympathise with one to whom I am indebted for more comfort and resignation under calamity than to any other source save one. Of news, public or private, I have little to tell you. You have, of course, heard of Tom Duncombes absurd challenge to Fraser, for quizzing his liaison with Madame Vestris ; if not, the enclosed doggrel will make you au fait of the facts. * The affliction alluded to was the insanity of Mrs. Southey. In a letter dated October 1834 , Southey thus writes on the subject to his friend Mr. Henry Taylor: Mine is a strong heart. I will not say that the last week has been the most trying in my life, but I will say that the heart which could bear it could bear anything.

One morning last year his lordship intending to enjoy a few hours sport after a rainy night, ordered 44 Bob, the pony, to be saddled. Lady Eldon told him he could not have it, but company being in the room gave no reason. In a few minutes, however, the servant opened the door and announced that44 Bob was ready. 6 44 Why, bless me I cried her ladyship, 44 you cant ride him, Lord Eldon, he has got no shoes on. 4 46 Oh yes! my lady, said the servant, 44 he was shod last week. 4 44 Shameful! exclaimed her ladyship, 44 how dared you, sir, or anybody, have that pony shod without orders? 44 John, continued she, addressing her husband, 44 you know you only rode him out shooting four times last year, so I had …
